Ditto on the “don’t buy for some future time.” Neighborhoods change, but so do markets. I bought a coop unit near the Ft. Totten metro 7 years ago when the plans for the new retail and arts development near Ft. Totten, Riggs and S. Dakota Ave were being planned for construction “in the next few years.” Because of the market crash that retail is only just getting built now, right as I’m trying to sell it. So I never go the benefit of nearby retail, but the next people will. I don’t regret it because it was very afforable so close to the metro (couldn’t find that anywhere else), but I couldn’t count on the neighborhood changing fast as I wanted it to.
